. chris: mitt romney's mind game is to call heavily the new change agent. and inviting voters to hop on the winning train. >> you're seeing this movement growing. you're seeing people come together to say we love america. we recognize we can do better. i came in and some of the folks here were holding signs, democrats for romney, all right? i love that. i love that. chris: well, the question is, is mitt romney really wenning or is this a psychological game in which he's getting the democrats to be demoralized while all this talk of him being ahead? >> beats me. usually you have a gut feeling about it. i have no gut feeling about this election. but i will say this. that calling -- that optimism and saying it's a big deal is more -- is more fundamentally american and more optimistic and more positive, i think, and so i would give romney slightly the upper hand on this message rather than saying you got to go out ask vote. chris: you may not like the things you are wut what happens if we lose the election seems to be the message. >> and that people like to go with a winner if he can pro
, this is the state that will likely decide the presidential election. governor romney knows that only too well that no republican has won the white house without winning ohio and the race right now in ohio is close to a dead heat. let's look at the two latest polls. first, our own cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows president obama with a three point lead. now that is inside the statistical margin of error. so that's about as close as it can get. and nbc "wall street journal" poll gives the president a six point lead in ohio. a little better for obama. still very close. now obama may be the top prize for the candidates right now l are other important battleground states. we'll take through over the course of the next hour in a way that only cnn can. john avalon and i traveled more than 1800 miles on cnn's battleground bus tour as the race for the white house reaches its conclusion. no mat wrer i ter where i go, t economy is the most important issue in this election. i've been traveling with john avalon. he joins me now as does my good friend christine romans. she joins me from washington. jim

. >> it is all about ohio. >> do you want more of the same or do you want real change? >> and governor romney will be in aetna, ohio. >> this is about eric mac. >> the salesman versus the storm. >> we're going to win on tuesday night. >> all the battlegrounds look winnable for the president. >> we're really down to the last seven states. >> it is still all about the economy. >> we've made real progress. >> you've got this jobs report, the unemployment report. >> definitely a strong jobs report. >> stronger than expected. >> that's good. >> unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> he is about as hollow as the tin man. >> if we don't run candy crowley, romney will be the nominee and he'll lose. >>> we begin tonight with the latest on the recovery from the devastation of hurricane sandy. nbc news has now confirmed 94 deaths from the storm. more than half of those killed, 48 died in the state of new york. of that 48 in the state, 40 deaths occurred here in new york city. and of those 40 new york city deaths, more than half, 22, occurred in the borough that was the harde
to the polls, they're going to make the right decision. it will be mitt romney. thank you. host: moving on to elkhart, indiana. dale is on our line for independents. dale is optimistic about the economy. go ahead, dale. caller: hi. how are you? host: i'm doing fine. you say that you're optimistic about the economy. why is that? caller: well, our economy is so big, it's just going to keep going no matter what, even though we came close to falling off of a cliff, we still rebounded no matter the negative or positive attitudes that were out there. we continue to still grow. we need to have more percentage growth. but i just feel it's just going to keep going no matter what our politicians or our big business or anybody does. host: hey, dale, what kind of business are you in? what do you do for a living? caller: i'm a quality technician for aerospace components. host: and based on the things that you've seen and what's happening in your aerospace industry, does that also help fuel your optimism for the economy? caller: yeah, we added quite a few, probably 30%, 40% of people in the last two
romney a talking point. >> unemployment today is higher than on the day barack obama took office. >> eliot: what he didn't say was that the economy was losing 800,000 jobs a month when obama took office. during his term the economy added millions of jobs. professor at us berkeley goldman school of public policy and author of "beyond outrage: what has gone wrong with our economy and our democracy and how to fix it." hello, mr. secretary. >> hello eliot. >> eliot: there was a massive conspiracy that the economy was picking up steam. do you think the numbers prove there is an accelerating fact that there improvement. >> the reason why unemployment ticked up was because more people are trying to find jobs now, and in that particular survey the bureau of labor statistics only looks at the number of people who are trying to find jobs. when more people are trying to find jobs because they are more optimistic about there being jobs there that means the unemployment rate actually ironically goes up. the real important number is the establishment survey number. that 171,000 new jobs is a m
alphabetically and come up with the same order. -- let's take a look at a couple of clips from the second romney. roll the clips, please. >> let me mention something else the president said a moment ago when he was describing chinese investments and so forth. >> hold on a second. speaking. -- hold on a second. speaking. >> governor romney, of these people have been waiting. >> any investment i have had have been managed by a blind trust, and i do understand they include investments in chinese companies. your pension? >> i did not look at my pension. it is not as big as yours. i do not check it that often. >> that me give you some a device, but get your pension. he also invests in chinese companies, and outside of the united states. >> we are way off topic here, governor romney. [laughter] >> governor romney, thank you. >> i think it is interesting the president said something that on the day after the attack he went to the rose garden and said this was an act of terror. he said the day after the attack that it was an act of terror, not a spontaneous demonstration? >> please proceed, governor. >>
president biden and mitt romney canceled campaign rallies in virginia beach, scheduled there this weekend. now, the obama campaign says the change was taken out of an a abundance of caution and so that police and emergency crews could stay focused on helping preepal with the storm. >>> first lady michelle obama has canceled a rally in another swing state, new hampshire. it was scheduled for next week in durham. the campus is closing for the storm. next hour we're talking with a member of the political operation there about the four electoral votes in new hampshire and why they are so crucial. >>> forget about the campaign events alone, there are fears that the storm could prevent some people from voting altogether. edison electric institute warned customers that sandy cou ay couk power out for seven to ten days, and we're ten days out here, which could include the election day. flooding and extensive damage could keep people from making it to the polls. just look at this picture we put together showing some of the campaign layers impacted by a major storm hitting the east coast. now, as w
who might be leaning towards obama, might be leaning towards romney, but haven't cemented it in. so what we're going to see over the next two weeks or next 12 days, is they are going to make an effort to try to lock up their base, get their vote out, but also try to get these uncommitted voters to come their way. so, we've heard a lot in their messages. it has all come down to the economy. the last presidential debate this past week was about foreign policy but dominated by the discussion of the economy and that's what we're going to hear from the candidates on the campaign trail. >> candy, ultimately those, that small sliver that mark is talking about, wants answers as you suggest, they are not likely to get in the next week and a half or so. inevitably, there are going to be unanswered questions. it won't matter for the loser what is the advantage to being nonspecific right now. can they still -- can these candidates who are deadlocked, can they win this election without getting more specific? >> well, somebody will without -- and neither one of them have been very specific as you
. then vice-president joe biden. then ann romney campaigned for her husband in florida. republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan is making a number of stops in ohio. here, he speaks to supporters in zanesville. this is about 30 minutes. we begin with remarks by ohio governor john k. asek. [applause] >> how you doing out here, huh? we are more excited. paul ryan is here, the next vice president of the united states. my wife and my children are here. would you give them all round of applause? they have to put up with all of this. you know the situation. we are doing better. i hope you agree we are doing better. and we went from a loss of 400,000 jobs and we are up 112,000 now. we went from $8 billion in the hole to a balanced budget. not bad, huh? we are now the number four job creator in the united states and number 1 in the midwest. why? because of all of you. but the problem we have -- every day i think about these numbers and these headwinds that keep pushing us back. and the head winds are coming from washington. there are a lot of people here that are small business people.
is secure in our economy is strong. that is why i am supporting mitt romney, and is why i am asking for the support of missouri's second congressional district. as a first-time candidate, i do a lot of listening. for all of the fear that i hear out there, the one thing that i hear most often is we can do better. it is what our parents taught us. i remember watching mind twill morning, noon, and at night. i saw my father deal with every take the government through his way, whether it had to do with the signs on the front of the building or the prices on the showroom floor. he knew that he could do better if government would just get out of the way it and stay out of the way. and he was right. when we get government off the backs of our job creators, small businesses have a better chance of thriving. and when small businesses thrive, so does our economy. that is why instead of raising taxes, we ought to fix our 72,000 page monstrosity of a tax code, so we can keep jobs here and bring jobs home that have gone overseas. we should repeal the president's health care law, which makes it ha
his watch. that's quite a feat, but romney says not good enough. >> we're going to create 12 million new jobs and more take-home pay. >> reporter: >> how is that possible, major economic growth. the economy grew at a 2% annual rate during the third quarter, better but not nearly enough to significantly boost hiring. romney will be much more than that to keep his jobs promise. how about housing. prices in some areas are rising, foreclosures slowing, but this is america and what will really get the economy going again is you. consumer spending rising, consumer confidence the best in four years. there's no doubt president obama inherited an economy in crisis, and his supporters will tell you he's turned things around. >> we have made real progress. >> his final argument, he deserves another four years to finish the recovery. mitt romney says his business experience and his big ideas are what america needs. you've heard their closing arguments. now it's decision time. and that makes you the jury, and the jury in ohio may determine the fate of the nation for the next four years. in ohio t
romney promised that more can be done. over the next hour we'll look at whether these are presidential plans or presidential wish list s, christine. >> both candidates will try to spin this number to their advantage, ali. here are the facts, quite frnkly. numbers here show a jobs recovery, 150,000 jobs on average created each month this year. but that's not enough to make everyone feel like it's a robust labor market or it's really recovering. there's something here, ali, obviously, for everyone. you're going to get spin from both sides. unemployment rate from 7.9% still feels uncomfortable. the private sector is creating jobs, ali. >> absolutely. austan goolsbee, former chairman of the president's council of economic advisers. peter morissey is a professor at the university of maryland school of business and diane swonk is the chief economist with meserow. i know the case can be made that this president brought us back from the brink. did he bring us back fast enough and could this recovery have been stronger? austan? >> you know, it's always hard to say something counterfactual like
since hurricane sandy hit. mitt romney has an event starting any minute now in roanoke, virginia. and we'll wait to see today's tone on the campaign trail, but it's been noticeably softer from romney since the storm. now, we continue to see absolutely devastating pictures from sandy. 74 people are now dead. 5 million still without power. this morning, president obama was briefed again on the situation by fema officials. yesterday, he spent four hours touring the damage and meeting with people in new jersey. in an emotional moment, a marina owner came to him in tears. he promised her she's going to get the help she needs. >> we are with here for you. and we will not forget. we will follow up to make sure that you get all the help that you need until you've rebuilt. >> well, it's unprecedented timing. this is all happening just five days before the election. the latest round of nbc news wall street journal polls show the president leading in iowa, wisconsin, and new hampshire. but it is still very close. let me bring in washington post columnist dana millbank and molly ball. good morning.
% to mitt romney's 47%. that's within the sampling error making it still effectively a dead heat. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us right now. he's in ohio as well. john, take us inside these numbers. >> wolf, they are fascinating when you look deep in this poll. the president you just showed he's here in ohio. governor romney will be here tontd. they expect some 35,000 republicans at his rally. in this part of the state i'm in cincinnati tonight. when you look deep in our poll you see this one will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direct factory plants, the president leads 52% to 45%. some evidence there especially among white blue collar wo
there to be a ridiculously euphoric rally if romney were on to win. i don't believe he will. in fact i don't favor him winning. but having said that -- i know, no politics. >> no, i take issue with the statement that markets will have a rally if romney wins because we've seen a number of commenters putting out notes from firms from wall streerts who support romney nevertheless saying they think some of the price action, weaker stock market, a little bit of back up in bond yields may be owed to the fact that markets pricing in romney victory and actually not liking what it sees. p. >> i don't agree with that at all. i think on this side of the pond, the dominant view is that obama will probably succeed. i don't think the market is pricing that in at all. i think if anything, folks are continuing with the same means which are very, very weak europe, concern prior to the pmi number today about china, the fact that aggregate demands in general is under pressure. this is still a big global story about aggregate demand relative to the supply of labor capacity and capital globally. we don't have a sufficient
will monitor the storm in the white house. the romney team dropping fund-raising e-mails up and down the east coast. over the next two hours we will talk to the voters of this critical state, especially in the southwestern part of the state and talk about why ohio could be the most critical battleground state of 2008, martha. martha: you about first, bill, team fox coverage on this monster storm. rick leventhal live in point pleasant beach, new jersey, maria molina tracking storm in the extreme weather center. let's get started with wrik on the shore where the effects of sandy are just beginning to be femt. good morning, rick. >> reporter: good morning, martha. conditions deteriorating here. my rain suit covered with sand and as sandy starts to reach the jersey shore. this town is under mandatory evacuation order. this is not barrier island but officials were worried because they expected surge to be significant. you can see the water reaching this pier out on the beach. local authorities went door-to-door yesterday telling residents to get out. they say most of the residents did heed the war
over the last undecideds. governor romney promising to turn this economy around, president obama arguing it would have been worse if republicans would have been in charge over the past four years. with the final sprint on today we get the last pre election look at the unemployment situation in this country, the jobless rate ticking up last month to 7.9%, up from 7.8. some 12.3 million people unemployed. the number is higher when you add in the under employed, folks who want to be doing more than part time work, but are not, that number would jump to 23 million u.n. or under employed. both candidates hit the trail earlier and had this to say about the numbers. >> this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. [cheers and applause] >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it's actually 7.9%, and that is 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. megyn: chris stirewalt the fox news digital politic
the foreign policy do pate between a calm, reasoned mitt romney and ?eering, condescending barack obama? a fair and balanced discussion coming up. and a new poll shows european prefer obama to romney, something that is not the tiniest shocking. greg? >> nice, andy. >> i don't know what that means. >> what, thanks, andy? >> yes. >> you know what, maybe you don't deserve the thanks. >> maybe i just never heard it before from you, greg. >> let's welcome our guest, you jerk. well, she is so british she sneezes earl graty. it is quite messy. i am here with author and political commentator imogeth lloyd webber. that's three names. her latest is called "the twitter diaries" and if hilarity was a seafood restaurant he would have crabs. you get a new job every week. it is michael money -- moynihan. >> i keep getting fired. >> sitting next to me is the brother of gavin mcguiness, miles mcguiness. she a crusader for honesty and justice in a country that knows neither. he is a film maker and poet currently between jobs. >> a block. >> the lede. that's the first story. >> did obama fibia? in the las
a comment that mitt romney made during the presidential debate, where he talks about his desire to hire a lot of women. and it's not helping him. i think that's reflected in the poll numbers because you're seeing right now romney is tied, or seems to have a kind of momentum moving into the time week. that's just what pollsters are saying. i think democrats feel that this will help particularly with women voters, because they make up the majority, and if they can kind of put forward this argument that mitt romney wants to take away somethings that are very important to them, then they can get the edge amongst that party leck rate. which in a very close election can be really critical. host: thank you both for being with us on this news maker for this sunday. >> watch our newsmakers with rande paul again today at 6:00 p.m. eastern on c-span. now watch our coverage of the presidential candidates, plus races from around the country. next on c-span, a third party presidential debate moderated by larry king, followed by the final presidential debate on foreign policy. and later, former g nor
to supporters, and it also leaves the door open for mitt romney. and what you heard which is to say, this guy didn't deliver what he said he would, it's time to give somebody else the ball. megyn: when a difference from four years ago. i mean at this point in the election four years ago you could feel a momentum behind barack obama and people like you knew who was going to win that race. you know, it wasn't something that you could come out and say openly because you've got to keep an open mind, but it was clear that barack obama was going to win this election, and it is anything but clear this time around. >> no, you know, the analogy i would use is like two ships that are drifting into each other on election day. we don't know who has got the momentum, each side can make an argument about who is up, who is down, whose base is going to be more motivated, certainly in the president you hear as he is trying in the closing days, his tone for the last couple of weeks was mocking and derise i have of romney, now he's going into more high minded regret. he's sorry about how things are, he's sorry
in orlando before heading back to the white house. >> romney's campaign bus used to help. and stop sending fund raiser e-mails in the states in the line of torm's path he's urging supporters to cipe millions at risk in their prayers . >> they are concerned about the storm and our thoughts and prayers are with those people who are in harm's way. >> today romney will visit ohio, wisconsin. >> and travelers stranded because of hurricane sandy. many planes were moved to safer ground. one family stranded for days and leaving their kids on their own. >> we have children up in new york that are preparing for the hurricane and they have to go through it on their own. i don't think we will fly out on tuesday . we'll get lucky for tuesday or thursday. >> they are waving fees for passengers who rescheduled their trips. >> san francisco, four in a row. >> got him. one and all. they get it in detroit. giants beating the tigers to win the world series. pablo sandoval named mvp. second championship. it means good news for san francisco. baseball is done and full focus now on football. >> great yob. >> st
profited from the situation? >> for mitt romney, it is a difficult situation because national disaster times are times when politics are supposed to be put aside, so campaigning too early might hurt him, but it is the only thing he can do because he does not have any form of public office. that is why the campaign is putting him back up to speed on wednesday. he already had a campaign stop. for president obama, it is exactly the contrary because every day he seems to be commander-in-chief is better for him where he can do something as a president. his campaign management is taking its time to put him back on the trail, but pundits agree that the whole situation probably helped president obama more than it helped mitt romney. to what extent is quite unclear still. >> thanks for joining us. we will have a report about the election campaign in a little bit. >> airports in new york and new jersey were also crippled by the storm sandy. only two are now a starting to get back to business. >> it will still take time until air travel is back up and running at normal pace. >> new york's la guar
the president cancels another day of campaigning governor mitt romney is focusing on key battleground state of florida. this as we take a live look what is a rally in tampa. you see the stage sort of in the distance there. that is where former governor jeb bush will appear at any moment with mitt romney. the pair will travel to coral gables and jacksonville for two morallies later day. janice dean mentioned we are less than a week away from election day. chief political correspondent carl cameron is live in tampa with it all. hey, carl. >> reporter: hi, jenna. romney is eager to get back in the campaign saddle after day and a half lull for the sandy disaster. mr. romney has three events here in florida, a key battleground state where the polls continue to tighten. we've been telling everybody for year-and-a-half this is likely to end up close in a number of key battleground states as well as national polls. the national polls have been within the margin literally for weeks. in florida the latest quinnepiac survey, president is up two points. well within the margin and basically reflection o
to smack around. the romney camp raised plenty from the same guys, but the fund jz raising specialists say mitt romney doesn't bash them. that's true. what do you think of this? >> it's a branding problem. i think that, unfortunately, the democratic party, the obama administrationampaign has trapped the g.o.p. and mitt romney into a box by saying we are the party that defends the 1%, and in return, we're trying to, you know, keep the tax rates low and no tax hikes so that makes us, in a weird way, backed into a corner defending the 1 #%. that makes us look like we defend the special interests. neil: if that's the case, and, i mean, i know you argue it's not true, come back at say, well, why are you taking money from the same group that is last time we checked the 1%. >> it's the obama spin. a lot of teem -- a lot of people are not like you into the news. everybody catches glimpses, short 30-second 1-minute adds, and they thin that obama -- neil: they can see pot meet kettle; right? they can see hi hypocrisy; righ? >> they can. i think this happened with libya. they are seeing, wow, you are
